Full (3/10)



  1. I know I’m a week late but as a 16 year year old in September, 2001 I’m of the generation who remembers that Tuesday afternoon(being in Ireland it was afternoon when the attacks first started), and I remember going to my second to last class of the day at 2pm(need to remember twenty years ago smartphones weren’t a thing) and there was no teacher which was very strange and after a few minutes, a teacher passed the classroom and said “ A plane has crashed into the world trade centre in New York City” and I only knew what they were because of the Simpson episode. I remember walking into the city centre where I lived and seeing the pictures of the towers burning and the second plane hitting the second tower and even to this day seeing it back, it seem so surreal.
  2. Can Chris pitman account for his whereabouts if it was food poisoning as Axl seems to think.
  3. Because he wasn’t a permanent member despite what he said because as we saw from his book(the original version), he’s fuller than a Christmas turkey at times.
  4. I know this thread is about slash and Paul huge, but that incident IMO incapsulates the whole issue with GNR post UYI tour, when the lack of communication in the band got worse. I don’t know why Axl couldn’t have simply asked slash would he be okay with working with Paul. The worst slash could have said was no, but while I agree that slash had(and still has) an ego because given he was at the time one of the best guitarists in the world, it’s hardly a shock, he’d take issue with someone being forced on him. it’s a what if, but I think Izzy leaving the band was a detriment to the band both in terms of songwriting but also in terms of him being a go between between axl and slash.
  5. The song don’t cry(as in the musical parts of it) are an amazing song. But I agree with the OP in that I like the alt version lyrics, because I think they fit the song better.
  6. You’re trying to inject logic into the inner workings of GNR. Doesn’t always end well.
  7. If I had listened to silkworms even remotely recently I might have disliked this more but due to me not doing that, I don’t dislike it as much. Some of the lyrics are certainly from two decades ago although there are some changes to it. Well at least it gives us something new to talk about and a bit of good publicity for the band.
  8. Well like the song says “the only way is up” and it seems that Axl along with some technical difficulties( I should have said nothing a few days ago) was first show of a tour bad + something else. I still have tickets for next June here in Ireland but it’s not sounding great. Hopefully this is just the result of the longer lay off. The next couple of shows will need to improve though and whether technical issues will be sorted. It’s either axl doesn’t want to rehearse regularly or it’s that he can’t.
  9. I hope they pull out that classic “technical difficulties” for one last time because it’s a underrated gnr song.
  10. Oh I’m hopeful they will happen but considering where we were a few months ago it’s not as locked on as it was.
  11. I know a few months back the show in Australia were seen as a certainty to happen but now I don’t know, because three Australian states have gone into some form of lockdown and Sydney seems particularly bad(in Australian terms) and both Australia and New Zealand seem to have a policy of keeping their borders shut to outside which can’t help bands touring. I do know from my brother who lives in Australia that the vaccine rollout isn’t exactly moving along.
  12. And some posters in the “does anybody care ?” said I and others were being too negative because we were finding it hard to care about the band. Yeah horse shit like this is one of the reasons why I and many others aren’t as bothered as we used to be. If they’d ever fucking listened to Brandos podcast(which I have both audio and video) they’d know it’s a podcast about GNR that is anything but a negative. Imagine going out of your way to nix free publicity for a band that needs it. And the argument about whether it’s TB going on a solo run, or it’s getting directives from Axl or whatever combination it is, it’s still a mess and they seem hell bent on annoying the fans and not trying to engage with them, unlike what like nearly every other band does with a lot of success and it shows. Again brando I’m only one listener but I’ll keep listening and I’m sure many others will too.
  13. The video last night was actually good. I liked the moment between Steven Adler and duff on during the song where they’re next to each other and Steven has a big smile on his face. Good good stuff.
  14. It might have allowed all the issues that axl had with the former members to subside a lot sooner than 2015/16 because out of sight out of mind would possibly have helped him, but that’s me speculating on what ifs which isn’t an exact science, or a science at all. I saw the Axl only version of GNR twice and I know some don’t consider that GNR and that’s their point of view. I happen to think they were because the name was on the tickets. I do think the name put pressure on Axl to kind of prove that he could do it without slash which was probably too much pressure. I liked CD and I think the album would have fared better not under threat GNR name.
  15. I’ll always care to some degree but the degree to which I care has gotten lower as the years have gone on, and in particular since 2016 when I assumed(maybe that was a mistake) that now that slash and duff were back in the band, that it would reignite a creative fire in axl rose. I don’t know maybe I put too much hope in the return of slash and duff, and while seeing them in slane in 2017 onstage was an amazing day and I’ll never forget it, and even though I’ve a ticket for next year in Dublin, I’m finding it hard to give a shit about it, partly because it’s been delayed twice, and because I don’t see how it will be any good and the concerts this summer in the US, I’ll be watching closely to see what the band and more specifically Axl is like both appearance and performance wise. If Axl sounds worse than he did in early 2020, then I can’t see how nearly a year and half off the road, and adding nearly a year on isn’t going to help Axl. I know I’m repeating myself and I’m sorry if my posts come across as overly negative, but to be perfectly honest, can you blame me and others for not being happy and enthusiastic about this band when to varying degrees, we have invested a lot of time and money into this band and while I don’t think this band owes me or anyone else anything specific in terms of new music or whatever else, I do think that we as fans are owed a degree of respect which is severely lacking IMO. Again, I’m sorry if this is overly negative but there’s only so times as a fan of guns n Roses you can be treated like a wind sock before you say to hell with it. I mean I still listen to the albums and interviews but even that gets repetitive after a while.
